Another from the specialist collection of Military themed vehicles we have been asked to market for the owners. This 1995 Jeep has had a massive amount of money spent on its modifications not least on the fitting of a very heavy duty internal roll cage. Alongside this it also has a 4” lift to the uprated suspension, a Dana heavy duty rear axle, custom roof rack and light bar, front bumper with winch, 35” mud tyres on larger wheels, custom rear wheel carrier etc etc etc.. Its 4 litre petrol engine starts easily and runs well plus there is an LPG system fitted. All the military themed extras that are fitted, including the “snow tracks” in the back come with the car but the tents etc on the roof rack are not included in the sale. NOTE: While running and driving this one off Jeep will be sold for “show use” only. It is currently in 2wd drive format and will require a front prop shaft to be used in 4wd mode.

Built by the owner for Military show and use by the film industry, this 1995 Jeep Wrangler “Sahara” is now a very authentic looking vehicle that would fool a lot of people into thinking it’s much older. Powered by its powerful 4 litre petrol engine and equipped with the rarer 5 speed manual gear box, it not only looks the part but will go most places as well. A lot of money was spent on the conversion to “Army Spec” including things like the oversize wheel and tyre pack and a heavy duty winch that have been fitted. Coming equipped as pictured but without the “passenger”. Last on MOT’d in 2015 you will need to do a new one before use on the public roads, so being sold for show use only.

This very rare 1968 Renault 10 Major is now with us and fully UK registered on its age related “G” plate. Body work is very nice and has been resprayed at some point in the past. It has a nice deep shine to it and no significant damage past the odd scratch. Having been in a hot climate the underside of the car is very solid. Front and rear bumpers do have some areas where the chrome has gone thin, while the right hand rear light surround is there but has cracks otherwise all the body trims are there and in good order. Interior is very good but where some sections of the seat covers have been replaced there is a noticeable colour difference in the red vinyl. Past that the dash, carpets etc are all good. Mechanically the motor fires up easily and soon comes off choke to settle to a nice even tick over with no fuss. On the road it performs better than you would expect from such a small capacity engine, pulling well in all gears with smooth changes from the gear box. It’s fun along the B roads and handles nicely. Being a “10” one […]
This true survivor 1973 Toyota Corolla KE20 has just arrived with us from Portugal where the sunny weather and lack of salt, has obviously contributed to its overall condition you see here today. During its long term ownership, it was treated it to a full respray a few years back due to the normal “sun fade” and the paint still shines as well today, as when first done. Chrome work are all the original items with only minor pitting evident in some places, nothing that would warrant a rechrome, in fact you would struggle to get a better finish with today’s chrome! Body work is basically rust free, we did find evidence of a leaking battery at some point in its life, causing small perforations under the battery tray and this has been professionally cut out and repaired. Interior is all original and in excellent shape, there has been some debate as to whether the seats were once all black and the sun light has faded the cloth faces universally grey? Not sure but either way they look nice as they are. Cosmetically the only real let down is the state of the original rubbers door/window seals. All are present […]
Here’s another interesting classic that has been offered to us.This 1984 Montesa Cota 350, while not fitting in with the direction we are taking (posh way of saying i know nowt about off roaders 😁)the owner has asked us to list it for him on his behalf so note, it is in Spain and we will not be shipping it over until we recieve a sensible deposit. It does however have an interesting history. Apparently when Honda took over the factory from Montesa in the mid 80s, they stopped production of this 350 in favour of their own model. Having not long been in production, not many had been made, those that had been were sold off to the factory workers and infact were homologated as Cota 349s which were the earlier model with the earlier motor. The current owner bought the bike off its only owner from new, one of those factory workers that bought the bikes, hence why he knows so much about the bike and is 99.9% sure that the 514 kilometres showing on the clock is genuine. This bike has never been restored and is completely original. It has to be one of the best examples […]
Dacia 1300’s are a rare enough site here in the Uk, let alone an early series one like this 1978 version, that has just arrived with us! Not just that, but presented in the rarest colour and is a one owner from new car. In fact it looks to of only ever lived at two addresses, both of them in the same town, 20 years at one address and 20 at the next! It is down to this owner that the car has survived remarkably well, his liking to cover everything in rust inhibitor is what has stopped the corrosion these cars are famous for. It has been professionally valeted but there are still traces here and there of the “black stuff” Bodywork as we said is rust free, paintwork? Well it has obviously had a repaint, in the original colour, but it is not up to our standards and was probably done in his friends shed. Colour is pretty good match but it has been laid on very thick which has caused orange peel and “curtaining” in places. These could be addressed with some careful flatting down and polishing but personally I think it looks fine from 3 feet […]
This 1977 Renault 6 was owned by the same family in the same area of Spain its entire life and was in daily use up to 2006 when the its by then elderly owner gave up driving and parked it in a garage, there it stayed until late last year when it was sold by the family to my colleague in Spain on our behalf. Luckily the family had kept it regularly run up to temperature and moved it in and out of the garage so needing not much more than a replacement radiator, expansion tank , battery and a visit to our valeters ( as in the pictures, have you seen the weather outside?) it is now ready for a new home here in the UK. Fully UK registered on the correct “R” suffix and historic tax class so MOT and Tax exempt. These great little cars are very rare at the best of times but to see one this clean inside and out is very unusual. It has been repainted at some point in its life but it must of been some time ago now and the paint while not looking daft with that “fresh out of the […]
With a production run of only 3 years, the 24 Valve version of Mercedes excellent 300CE, some say the last of the “proper Mercs” was always going to be rare. To find a January 1990 car in this sort of non-restored condition, is even more unusual! There is only one 1989 example showing on the DVLA records so this has to be the next to oldest one left. Coming to us on sale for the owner unfortunately there is no service history, but check the MOT history on line and you will see this is no store it away and forget about it car, it has been constantly MOTd since records began so has been on the road all that time, so must have been up kept. Now we are not claiming the car is mint, the body work while being almost rust free, does have the odd mark here and there and signs of some paint work from over the years . ( Please Note that the Bonnet star that is missing in the pictures has been replaced with a genuine Merc star) Inside the black leather is in lovely order with just a small faded, not worn through, […]
